Hoppy Easter Time!

We started the day out coloring Easter eggs! Hurray for Easter time! We love it!
.

After calendar time, we reviewed rectangle and played "rock around the rectangle". We walked, danced, jumped, marched, crawled and tip toed around the rectangle and we would FREEZE when the music stopped. We also talked about in, out, and on the rectangle.
.

Next we re-read The Story of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter. We reviewed the front, back, title, pictures and words of a book.
.

Then we sang!

Al and Etta
tune of alouette
Al and Etta both went out to get a
Jumbo jar of jolly jelly beans.
Jolly Jelly beans of pink
That's exactly what I think
Beans of pink (sing high)
Beans of pink (sing low)
Beans of pink (sing high)
Beans of pink (sing low)
Ooooooooooh!
.
Al and Etta both went out to get a
Jumbo jar of jolly jelly beans.
Jolly Jelly beans of green
That's exactly what I mean
Beans of green (sing high)
Beans of green (sing low)
Beans of green (sing high)
Beans of green (sing low)
Ooooooooooh!
.
Al and Etta both went out to get a
Jumbo jar of jolly jelly beans.
Jolly Jelly beans of blue
This is what I'm telling you
Beans of blue (sing high)
Beans of blue(sing low)
Beans of blue (sing high)
Beans of blue (sing low)
Ooooooooooh!
.
Al and Etta both went out to get a
Jumbo jar of jolly jelly beans.
Jolly Jelly beans of red
That's exactly what I said
Beans of red (sing high)
Beans of red (sing low)
Beans of red (sing high)
Beans of red (sing low)
Ooooooooooh!
.
Al and Etta both went out to get a
Jumbo jar of jolly jelly beans.
Jolly Jelly beans of orange
Nothing really rhymes with orange.
.

After a hearty rendition of Al and Etta (which will be stuck in my head for at least the next month), we made our Easter bags. The kids all tried to cut around the bunny head themselves. It was hard to get around all those grooves!
.

Then, after snack, we reviewed colors and played "Is it Pink or Orange"? The kids each took turns picking from my bag of colors and placing the items in the pink or orange piles.
.

Next, we reviewed Ee. We looked at pictures that started with Ee, then I said some words, if the word started with the /e/ sound the kids gave me a big smile, if it started with another sound, they gave me a frown.
